The made for TV East of Eden is superb!
2 January 2000 | by (Whitney Point, NY) – See all my reviews

The movie is very true to Steinbeck, and Jane Seymour shines in her role in the film. The supporting cast is excellent also in bringing this classic novel to life! Steinbeck's often underrated book is one of my favorites and this film enhances Steinbeck's wonderful work! This is one of those films that I watch over and over!
